Consumer Product Safety Commission Recent Product Recalls

July 13, 2011

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. Like the attorneys at Feldman Shepherd, the CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a hazard or can injure children. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as power tools, toys, clothing and household items - contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years. Here are some of the recent recalls that you should be aware of:
